Nice Ride!

Perfect size, smooth drive, definitely stylish. This vehicle is equipped with so many features. This one’s a keeper! I highly recommend stopping by your nearest dealer and taking one for a test drive.


Hands down the best car I've ever owned thus far!

This car is a dream come true for me. It has plenty of fun entertainment features to make me happy without overwhelming me with too much on my dash at once. I test drove a Rav4 and while it was a nice car as well, the dash reminded me of a space ship b/c there was so much going on at once and I struggled to even locate my current speed amongst everything else. With my Mazda I can opt to keep it simple or put more information up on my dash as I want and the speedometer is never part of that particular part of the dash area so no worries about not knowing how fast I'm going. it has wonderful cruise control features that make traveling long distances on the interstate a dream come true. It's stylish and comfortable with plenty of room. The front seats recline almost to a full lay down position which is an awesome feature for me since I enjoy napping in my car on my lunch break sometimes and it makes it so much more comfortable that way. The trunk space is plenty roomy for a small family with no kids, or one kid, and i love the one touch open and close feature. the backup camera is like watching a hi-def movie it's so clear and the safety features with the lane assist and even coupled with the back up camera sensors to warn you if someone is coming along your sides that you can't see quite yet, can't be beat. the back seats can fold down in three seperate ways so that you have versatile options for transporting larger items that won't fit just in the back hatch. I've had this car for about a month now and I don't have anything bad to say about it honestly. I love everything about it and I used to loathe driving and now I love it thanks to Mazda and my CX-5.


Love this car!

I bought the Signature edition and I love it! There are so many safety features and it has higher ground clearance than my Honda CRV. That is important in snowy Colorado. Plus, it's fun to drive!


As a trauma nurse, safety is paramount to me.

Mazda has one of the highest, if not the highest, safety record for SUV’s. I trade vehicles every 2-3 years, this is my 3rd Mazda, it’s the best vehicle I’ve ever owned.


Great vehicle!

I own a Mazda 2016, and it’s the best car I have ever owned. So naturally I wanted to stay with that model, just wanted an upgrade.


It’s got it all!

Good looking, reliable, great performing vehicle. And oh so comfortable. Better than great sales experience at Wantagh Mazda. It’s got every feature you need and a few you never thought of. Very enjoyable car.


Very comfortable and feels like a luxury ride!

Interior and exterior are elegant and sporty. Gas mileage is exceeding expectations now and the high tech features are fun and useful! Very quite rude!


Mazda CX-5 is excellent value

Love this car. Bought the CX-5 Grand Touring with Premium Package and it has all the bells and whistles that I was looking for. Love the Parchment color leather seats too. The exterior color, “Soul Red Crystal Metallic” is stunning.


Liked my first CX-5 so much I had to have another

I was confident that I would like this car and I do. Seems a little bit roomier which is good and the exterior styling is very appealing. It looks like it could handle any road conditions without sacrificing a safe and comfortable ride.


So far one of the best I've ever had

It came with everything I was asking for, it's great on the road. You'll love the flexibility if this vehicle. My favorite thing, cooling seats, don't get me wrong I love everything about it, but those little things make a difference.
